Delegates from the NUS Wales LGBT Conference 2013 have elected Rhodri Roberts as LGBT Officer for the next year. Delegates also passed a motion creating campaign policy for the future. 

Rhodri Roberts (University of South Wales Students Union) will take over as NUS Wales LGBT Officer from Ian Morgan in July.

Here’s what Rhodri had to say about his election win and what he wants the campaign to do in the year ahead:

Ricki Hewitt (Deeside College) was also elected as NUS Wales LGBT Steering Officer and Martyn Curzey as NUS Wales LGBT Committee member (open place).

Delegates passed the only proposed motion that will aim to promote better sexual health awareness in Wales with particular attention to lobbying the Welsh Government for further funding in this area.

Caucuses were held for women, FE, trans and bi delegates with the following students being elected:

  • Womens: Lorraine Bainbridge – Aberystwyth University Students Union
  • Further Education: Jordon Forse – Bridgend College Students Union
  • Trans: Ellie Davison – Bangor University Students Union
  • Bi: Sarah Lynn – Cardiff University Students Union
